Captive breeding / propagation
The offspring of Pavona maldivensis are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Pavona maldivensis, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Pavona maldivensis, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
Infos from AIMS: For more Infos look to the Hyperlink:
Characters: Colonies are columnar and/or thin horizontal or encrusting plates. Individual colonies are commonly mixtures of these growth-forms. Columnar growth-forms occur where wave action is strong, plates occur in protected habitats. Corallites are circular, plocoid and usually of irregular sizes. Those near plate margins may be aligned in parallel rows. Colour: Pale or dark grey-brown or green, sometimes bright orange.
